Featured this week in the United States is our National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington, D.C. 2017 marks the 95th year of this beloved tradition. (Click here for more information on the National Parks Service website.)
Since most of us are already up to our elbows in Christmas projects, I thought it would be wonderful to tangle some trees in celebration of our national tree as well as our own.
We begin with this string ~
|IAST String by Adele Bruno, CZT|
Whether you prefer to tangle your tile in the traditional manner or create Zentangle® Inspired Art, this promises to be festive fun.
Let's decorate our trees with tangles that include -
Cake by Una Wang
Cruffle by Sandy Hunter, CZT
Flux by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts
and even though we just used Primtemp last week, it does make for a pretty tree.
Please feel free to decorate your trees with any other tangles that come to mind.
Please include the names of them in your email to help others who may want to look up their step outs.
In the meantime, Friday's eBook release is just a few days away - stay tuned!
Simply pencil the string line onto your tile and tangle away!
